What Is A Password Manager?
Find out what a password manager is and why you need one if you have multiple accounts online that you want to remain secure.
Passwords are an inescapable part of internet life, whether you’re shopping, checking email or on Facebook. They’re the unsung heroes of our privacy online — the last digital barrier that stops others from accessing our personal and financial data. But according to research, the average person has 27 passwords to memorize. And they can be a hassle to reset. This is where password managers come in. They take away the guesswork and alleviate the stress of forgetting, protecting and remembering all your passwords for you. They can also work across multiple devices, so whether you’re on your laptop, tablet or phone, you’ll be covered.
